Reviews

The marriage between poetry and music has been with us for centuries. This reviewer discovered another excellent example of this with a collection of music, released in 2011, called “Absolute Gravity” by PoeticBeatz. This is a collaboration between Laura Lme (Poet) and Tom Cloverfield (Producer). For this production they also brought in the voice and music of Cass Ferre. This trio presents to us world class pieces of electronic beats.

The music presented by Cass Ferre on each track causes many emotions in the first six tracks. “Life” starts with a dramatic feel that carries on throughout this collection. This theme of music is mixed beautifully with the elements of classical music, “Dreams” and “Tears” bringing a dreamy, romantic feel.

The vocal talents of Cass Ferre are sincerely showcased on the tracks, “Moments” and “Whispers”. The harmony voices added to each track will leave you entranced with the music and vocals that accompany it. The production and arrangement of Tom Cloverfield is truly highlighted during these tracks.

Not to be lost without this excellent collection are the words of Laura Lme. There are subjects of spirituality, growth and romance. The team of Cass Ferre and Tom Cloverfield never let the words come to us unclear or muffled. You clearly can hear what the message is.

To this reviewer, the highlight of this whole package of music is the closing tracking, “Absolute Gravity”. Sung by Laura Lme against the music provided by Tom Cloverfield gives a positive message while giving a huge club feel.

“Absolute Gravity” and its mixes will keep you weaving and bobbing in the clubs or at home with the world class production given to it. For anyone that is a fan of this music this package is just for you.

Review By Andy Scott on SWAGGAKINGS.com Online Magazine

In “Absolute Gravity”, Laura LME reinvents her poetry as the lyrical interposition to hypnotic grooves.

“Against a range of electronic music Cass Ferre and Tom Cloverfield – which traverses house, trance, drum and bass, chillout, and more – Laura’s verses become ethereal, almost instrumental in quality. The effect is rhythmic and mesmerizing, a gorgeous mix of words and music that is at once introspective, contemplative and yet exuberant and richly aural, with the potential to capture an entirely new audience for poetry.” Author, Poet Samuel Peralta aka Semaphore

“Absolute Gravity is a superior fusion of pulsating electronic grooves mixed with brilliant, sublime poetry.

The tracks blend cohesively with a common thread of rolling melodies and intimate ambiances creating a perfectly sonic, gravity defying experience. This release will surely be on constant rotation in my player.” – DJ Chicken George (Peddlin’ Jazztronica!)

“Absolute Gravity” is an absolute delight. Laura LME’s intelligent poetry is brought to life in her new “Absolute Gravity”

recording, a unique spoken word and music collaboration. She reads her poem with Tom Cloverfield’s music in an audio dance that pulses with her realizations. When she repeats “everything brings me back to you” with absolute gravity, I can feel the movement of her spirit in her beautiful and haunting voice.
Setting verse into motion is one of Laura LME’s gifts I have come to love.
She creates a new genre for sharing the poet’s inner world.” J.J. Brown Poet Writer Author

“Wow! Totally hypnotic and utterly engrossing. It’s impossible to do anything else when ‘Moments’ is playing; an all absorbing aural experience. Got to get your album. Outstanding.” Richard Wiseman Author

“Ottimo esordio anche nel mondo della musica!. Un album, questo, che merita di scalare le vette delle classifiche di musica lounge e non solo!! Parole e musica stupende sulle quali auguro a Laura un grande avvenire anche come produttrice musicale!” Ivan Iacobucci DJ Producer On-Air Personality

* Translation: “Great debut in the music world! This is an album that deserves to climb the top of the charts, of lounge-chillout music and not only that! Words and Music are beautiful! Wishing Laura a great future in the music industry!” Ivan Iacobucci

 “È come entrare in una navicella spaziale che ti accompagna nel viaggio interiore alla ricerca del tuo vero potere, è un suggestivo suggerimento ad aprire i tuoi occhi, vivi l’emozione della crescita verso l’assoluto. Una molteplicità di emozioni e sensazioni che si susseguono dentro di me. Consiglio l’ascolto con gli occhi chiusi per agevolare la naturale apertura della nostra mente verso le vere sensazioni che PoeticBeatz ci hanno voluto comunicare. Sono certo che è la strada giusta per un grande successo, attendo nuove
emozioni da scoprire grazie al vostro Sound!
Be Absolute… be Gravity… Be Absolute Gravity!” Francesco Dettori Business Editor, Più Salute & Benessere Magazine

* Translation: It’s like entering a space ship, leading you to travel towards the discovery of your true inner power, it’s like a clear suggestion to open your eyes and live the emotional growth towards the “absolute”. A multitude of emotions and sensations arise… I suggest to listen to this track with your eyes closed to help the natural opening of our mind towards the true sensations that PoeticBeatz want to communicate, I’m pretty sure they are on the right road to a great success! Looking forward to listening to more PoeticBeatz tracks, feeling and discovering new emotions thanks to their sound! Be absolute… Be Gravity… Be Absolute Gravity! Francesco Dettori

Gestures: heritage and tradition

“Capissce a mmè? Do you understand me?”

Congrats to Anna Simi on the recent release of her photographic project and book “Capissce a mmè? Do you understand me?”
Original images of gestures by Bari (Apulia – Italy) natives represented in this unique promenade through heritage and tradition!
Entertaining, funny and so true.

Anna Simi’s “Capissce a mmé?” is not only a book of photography, it is also an accurate study of the cultural and etymological origins of the traditional gestures inherited by the people of Bari.
“Capissce a mmé?” follows the great success of the exhibition launched in 2014 in Bari, later exported to other European cities.
This project was born in the old city of Bari, where the characters of the photographs currently live and hand down their legacy to the new generations including legends, traditions and native customs.
The gestures, interpreted by the protagonists featured in this book, represent their whole world of impromptu expressions, memories and quotes that the author studied and researched to get to the roots of their meaning.
Anna Simi’s work enhances the link between words and gestures which blossom into a new linguistic code.
The physical expressions captured in Anna’s photographs become strategically instrumental in the research phases of this project and help the public’s interest build up to the final discovery of the meaning of the gestural language.
In this project, words and their representation in images complement each other. The purpose of Anna’s work is to capture the reader’s attention, igniting the spirit of belonging as well as the instinctive will of preserving popular traditions, often neglected and forgotten.
This documentary mission by Anna Simi pushes the linguistic boundaries, transposing words and images in another language, crossing the cultural barriers of a project deeply rooted in its native origins.


Written in Bari dialect, Italian and English and of course filled with Anna’s talent for portrait photography – Looking forward to hearing about the London presentation soon!

Bridge

Suspended,
on this bridge
crossing over life
Spatial excess
the extension of us
fluid and flexible
against the rigid chords of time.
Listening to thoughts
breathing ideas,
virtual reality our dreams
floating on waves of disbelief
landing on proposed realities…

Excerpt from “Floating”

Let's keep it %22human%22

Fighting pain
winning space
in that eternal moment:
Truth!
When all stands still,
dangerously fixed
on the walls of time.

Endlessly walking,
inverted pendulum of hopes,
losing faith
in circles of revelations
when all around is turning,
spinning fast
in everlasting spirals…

Excerpt from “Strength”

#AThousandSilentWords

 

The sound of silence

Blanket of nullity,
no time,
it invades the space
swallows the voice
suffocates words
crushes the heart.

Soul’s cords vibrate
with no sound.
Only the blowing wind
in the chorus of wing-beats
through bare branches
on a carpet of leaves
of a winter garden

Still
Rigid of ice and frost
enchanted, taciturn
Icy colored flowers.
Sound waves
infiltrated
in a tissue of cries
heart-rending,

Sharp
locked
and through the cold walls
of uncertain times
the sound of silence
screams again.

Il suono del silenzio

La coltre del nulla,
senza tempo
invade lo spazio
ingoia la voce
soffoca le parole
stritola il cuore

Vibrano le corde dell’anima
nessun suono
solo i soffi del vento
in cori di battiti d’ali
tra rami spogli,
su tappeti di foglie
di un giardino d’inverno

Fermo
rigido di gelo e brina
incantato e taciturno
Fiori color ghiaccio,
onde sonore,
infiltrate in un tessuto di urla,
rimangono prigioniere
e tra le mura fredde
di una sera incerta,
il suono del silenzio grida ancora.
